just want to suggest to W3C to devide all age groups by certain number to get countries in appropriate population range. Lions foot has 140M now, devide all groups by 2.3 to get it around 60M mark. dont play with other solutions. my country will be fu*** up completely by your changes, not my mistakes. birth rate is unbelievable 54k per year, while death 1550k per year. at the age of 18 ppl start having children. at that point my pop will be around 110M. still too high, birth rate will still be low. suddenly i will have country full of retired ppl and little young. old ones will die, new wont be able to cope with situation and i am concerned my country will have 20M pop instead 60M. now sitation is reversed. no old ppl for long time and high birth rate will launch pop over the limits again, etc.
just for comparison:
birth rate: 144,950
death rate: 111,677
birht rate: 54,027
death rate: 1,550,677
now if this situation lasts for 22 game years i will have 55k per year that will give me new population at one point (age group 18-40). if 5M country needs more than twice that number to sustain its current population, how am i going to maintain 60M?
